Please see attached.

This is not meant to be an exhaustive list, just a helpful one. If I'm missing any formulas that you think are essential, then let me know and I'll add them below:

ADDITIONAL FORMULAS

12) % change/increase/decrease = (difference)/(original) x 100

13) # of subsets of a set with n members: \(2^n\)

Sure! This is otherwise known as the "fundamental counting principle."

Let's say 4 = # of breakfast options, 5 = # of lunch options, and 6 = # of dinner options.

My total number of dining possibilities that day is 4 x 5 x 6 = 120.
